Discovering the Route of the Exodus and the True Mt Sinai in Arabia – Jabel Lawz

Ron Wyatt was a nurse who decided to become an archaeologist. He made some very significant findings, none the least being the discovery of the true Mt Sinai in Arabia – Jabel Laws. He also found the two pillars left by Solomon to mark the site of the Red Sea crossing. He found Chariot wheels on the floor of the Gulf of Aqaba which were encased in coral. These findings are to his credit. Around the same time, the late 1970’s, early 1980’s he went looking for the remains of Noah’s ark on Mt Arrarat in Turkey. He found a boat shaped object whick was composed of fossilized wood and giant iron rivets. It had the right dementions to be Noah’s ark. Giant anchor stones were found near by. As with most of his discoveries, many of the artifacts he found like the pilar of Solomon on the Jordanian side and the anchor stones that he found at Ararat were removed by unknow parties. It is forbidden to go to Mount Sinai, so few have seen it. The Photos that Wyatt took were confiscated by the Jordanians and Wyatt was held in a Jordanian jail for some time for his efforts. I believe that these finds are significant and credible exactly as he reported them and I agree with his conclusions. It was around the same time that Wyatt also went looking for the Ark of the Covenant. He spent a year exploring caves around Golgotha extending under the temple mount. After exploring the caves for a year, he got into a cave which had two entrances, one of which had been bricked off. In the cavern he claims to have found the Ark of the Covenant. He also claims to have found a crucifixion site immediately above the cavern and connected to the cavern by an earth quake crack. He says the crucifixion site had been marked by a round stone with the same dimentions that the missing stone of the garden tomb would have had. He found red material which he thought could have been the blood of Christ. After announcing his discoveries, the excavation was shut down by Israeli authorities. He was not able to bring the ark out and has never been able to substantiate his claim. He is now dead. Remarkably, though, he is the only person who has been permitted by the Israeli govenment to explore the caves. His associates lead by Richard Reeves were allowed to reopen his excavations 20yrs later around 2001. The cavern where the Ark was found is now filled with rubble. It is gone. It looks like he fabricated everything. But did he? That is the question. Did the Israeli government remove the Ark after shutting down his excavation? Why is Wyatt’s team the only team that is allowed to drill and excavate at the garden tomb even now over 25 yrs since the site was closed? The Israeli government has recentlt let them go in there with bulldosers! Why is this? May be it is because he did find the Ark and he suffered humiliation because the Israeli government covered it up. There is another group of Jews who claimed to have the ark in their possession not long after Wyatt claimed he found it. They went through the caves under the temple mount and found the bricked off end of the cavern that Wyatt found and removed the ark. The red stuff that Wyatt found was very unlikley to be Christ’s blood according to Richard Reeves. Reeves also found red material at the site 20 yrs after Wyatt, but it was a mould! Wyatt seems to have drawm the wrong conclusion about this but he never fabricated any evidence. Because much of what he found has gone missing and he could not substantiate his claim to have found the Ark of the Covernant, he has been discreditted in the eyes of many people. He is still one of my heros and I do not believe that he fabricated anything. His discovery of Mt Sinai, the Red Sea crossing site and maybe Noah’s ark still stand. It is hard to believe that one man could achieve so many discoveries in such a short period of time but look at Imhotep and what he achieved!! I stand by Wyatt and hope that one day he will be vindicated. He was an honorable man and I believe he was a reliable source of information.–Drnhawkins

Timeline from Noah to Christ Based on the dates given in the Bible and reliable historical dates

click picture to enlarge

Dates given in this diagram are based on the ages and genealogies given in the Bible. This chart differs slightly from those of other Biblical scholars in that the dates before the Exodus have been moved back by about 215 years. Many scholars have only allowed for 215 years of Egyptian slavery for the Israelites. The Bible actualy says that the Israelites were in Egypt for a period of 430 years (Exodus 12:40). It can be calculated from the dates given in the Bible (Genesis Ch 11), that the flood occurred 582 years before Jacob entered Egypt (Jacob was 130 yrs old when he entered Egypt and Abraham was 100yrs old when he had Issac and Issac 60 yrs old when he had Jacob). Archaelogical evidence is increasingly pointing to the Exodus being in the 13th Egyptian Dynasty in 1445BC and this is confirmed by the Bible which says that Solomon began building the temple 480yrs after the Exodus (1Kings 6:1). If the Exodus date is correct, the flood of Noah would have occured around 2457 BC (1445+430+582).
